The tune is the fourth Are and Be-playlist-marked Spotify Singles, following deliveries from Giveon, Chloe x Halle, and Lucky Daye.
In 1994, right around 30 years prior, R&B’s darling Aaliyah delivered a revamp of the Isley Brother’s exemplary as her second single from her presentation collection, Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number.
The tune topped at number six on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number two on the R&B singles diagram. With Aaliyah’s index at last accessible on every single streaming stage, the youthful Isley’s cover interfaces ages.
“I’ll always have such a strong emotional connection to this Track; it was composed by my father. There’s such pleasantness and trustworthiness there, it generally impacts me.
Aaliyah put her own stamp on this tune in a particularly lovely and immortal way, and I recollect the absolute first time I heard it as a young lady,” said Alex. Her rendition incorporates new vocal plans, yet generally speaking its design remains very near Aaliyah’s form.
However Alex can’t repeat Aaliyah’s pillowy falsetto and sharp mid-range, Alex’s warm tone sits pleasantly in the pocket of the similarly alleviating creation.
